For you newbies, or in case you missed it the first time:

Hello gout flare, my old friend
You've come to torment me again
Because high purines softly creeping
Crystals formed while I was sleeping
And these crystals that are planted in my toe
Cause me woe
Not limping in silence

From restless sleep gout woke me up
Wondering on just what I did sup
'Neath the halo of a nightlight lamp
My diet I would again revamp
When my toes were stabbed by the flash of a gouty ouch
Made me a grouch
I bit my tongue, in silence

And in the bathroom not that I saw
Ten thousand crystals, maybe more
Gout attacking without speaking
Non-sufferers hearing without listening
We’re writing blogs that people never read
No one indeed
Suffer the gouty, in silence

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Crystals in joints can grow and grow
Hear my words that I might teach you
Cry my toes that I might need you"
But my words, like silent crystals formed
And echoed
In my joints, in silence

And the sufferers bowed and prayed
For a cure for the dismayed
And the gout flashed out its warning
In the crystals that were forming
And the gout said, "The words of the genes are written in DNA
That is the way"
And they laughed, in the toes of silence

(Time to quit my day job? Or to hire a copyright infringement defense attorney?)
